What would you get if you crossed Ericksonian hypnotherapy with tapping?

One of the things you might get is the ‘Process Instructions Technique’, created by expert tapper Gene Monterastelli.

This is a simple way of combining tapping and the power of the unconscious mind to come up with new solutions and perspectives on our problems and outcomes. No swinging pocket watches or trances required.

To find out more join me at St Oswald’s Hospice Education Centre next Wednesday at 7pm.

EFT Cafe – Tapping Into Outcomes – 8th January 2020

It’s easy to get caught up in problems. Problems are magnetic, they occupy our thoughts and we can spend a lot of time tapping to ‘solve’ our problems.

Although we may be experts on our problems we often don’t give much time thinking about what we want instead.

What we want instead are sometimes called our ‘outcomes’.

In this month’s EFT Cafe Andy Hunt will explore how to choose our outcomes and how to use tapping to helps us achieve our outcomes.

The EFT Cafe is at 7pm on Wednesday 8th January at St Oswald’s Hospice, Newcastle upon Tyne and costs £10.

EFT Cafe – Tapping Into Self Compassion – 11th December 2019

Many of us consider compassion towards others to be a great virtue.

We may go out of our way to be kind to others in their time of need.

However, many of us are not good at being compassionate towards ourselves.

Quite the contrary, we can often treat ourselves in ways that we would never dream of treating others.

Somehow everyone else but us is eligible for our compassion.

This is unfortunate because self-compassion has been shown to be hugely beneficial for our emotional well-being.

In this month’s EFT Cafe Andy Hunt will be presenting a new and improved version of his Compassionate EFT tapping approach to help us be a little kinder to ourselves – especially over such a high stress holiday.

The EFT Cafe is at 7pm on Wednesday 11th December at St Oswald’s Hospice, Newcastle upon Tyne and costs £10.

Well begun is half done

A lot of us have trouble getting started on a task or project: writing the article, starting the exercise program or doing the ironing all need to get started started.

Once we have started it’s often easy to make progress, but getting started can be very hard.

It’s easy to avoid the taking the first step.

In this month’s EFT Cafe Andy Hunt will introduce the Stunt Double Process as a precise approach to help us take the first step of any endeavour (and the next).

The EFT Cafe is at 7pm on Wednesday 13th November at St Oswald’s Hospice, Newcastle upon Tyne

The Stunt Double Process

EFT is an excellent way to resolve traumas and change beliefs: these are powerful interventions and can have dramatic consequences in our lives.

You could think of them as changes at a high level, the ‘30,000 ft view’ of life, but what about changes at ground level.

If you think about it everything we do in our lives happens at ‘ground’ level.

Moment to moment we think, feel and do things.

Some of these things we do effortlessly, and may even enjoy, they are our valuable skills.

Something we do with great struggle or not at all, we might call these our problems.

EFT Cafe – Tapping Into Non-SMART Goals – 9th October 2019

Most people are familiar with the idea of Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timed (SMART) goals: pass the exam in July, paint the house next week, run the marathon in less than three hours, lose 15lb in two months, and so on.

But some goals don’t easily fit into the SMART framework: tap every day, practice meditation, take up regular exercise, finish what you start, learn the piano, be more assertive and so on. These kinds of goals may involve processes, habits or states of mind that run and develop over time.

This month’s EFT Café with a tapping process to help you achieve your non-SMART goals.

So, if you think you should tap but don’t, meditate but haven’t, or take exercise and don’t, finish what you start and don’t, and so on, this could be just for you.
